The Revolt RV400 is easily one of the most important motorcycles to launch in the country this year, being the first electric motorcycle to go on sale. While several other start-ups have showcased production-ready models till date, none of them has gone on sale, but Revolt Intellicorp, founded by Rahul Sharma of Micromax mobile phones fame, is launching the RV400 today.

Bookings for the bike began two months ago and Revolt claims to have received over 3,000 bookings for the bike already, which is a clear indicator of the interest the motorcycle has received. Revolt also claims the bike is India's first AI-enabled motorcycle as well and has equipped it with a host of functionalities including full-time connectivity to the motorcycle via a smartphone app. The launch event will begin shortly, but before that, here's everything you need to know about the motorcycle.
